Trump v Mueller: How the president won the messaging wars

Critics say Mueller failed to stand up for his investigation and to get the word out to the American people about what he found Special counsel Robert Mueller makes a statement about the Russia investigation at the Department of Justice on 29 May. Photograph: Carolyn Kaster/AP In so many ways, Robert Mueller was the right man for the job. The former special counsel was fast, precise, ran a tight ship and, working in a hyper-partisan environment under the full glare of history, Mueller managed to investigate and document a historic attack on the United States while retaining the public trust.

All the new iPad gestures you need to learn to leave your laptop behind

For a few years now, Apple has been insisting that the iPad is a better choice than a traditional laptop, and that might be true for some users. The iPad Pro, as well as the various features that Apple built for the tablet to take advantage of the extra screen real estate, make it a great tool for work -- but not a perfect work device.That is, it wasn't an ideal laptop replacement until earlier this week when Apple unveiled a bunch of iOS features for iPad that users have been demanding for years now. And iOS for iPad has received so many features that set it apart from iPhone that it got its own operating system name. iPadOS is, of course, iOS 13, plus all the new iPad features. But...

How Democrats Can Stop Playing Defense on Abortion
How Democrats Can Stop Playing Defense on Abortion

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily BeastThe Democrats must defeat the GOP's latest effort to impose the Bible as the law of America (which I have long referred to as "Christian Sharia law") as it relates to women's reproductive freedom.  And the best way to do that is by championing a constitutional amendment-on both the national and state levels-to protect a woman's right to control her own body. GOP activists have long openly shared their dream to overturn Roe v. Wade and to enact laws that will unduly restrict abortion in America.

Trump's Huawei Attack Is a Serious Mistake

The nuclear missile the U.S. just launched at Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. is a case in point. Last week, the Commerce Department placed Huawei and nearly 70 of its affiliates on an "Entity List," which means that U.S. suppliers may now need a license to do business with them. If the ban is applied stringently, it could drive one of China's most high-profile companies - employing more than 180,000 people - out of business.
